This summer’s blockbuster chick flick release is not Sex in the City 2 – it’s Eat Pray Love, based on the best-selling spiritual memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert and starring Julia Roberts. Set in Italy, India, and Bali, the story is about a woman who sets out on a journey of self-discovery after a miserable divorce, and along the way finds happiness, joy, and even love.

The book/film has now been turned into a tour by Vegas-based spiritual travel company, Spirit Quest Tours, which created Eat Pray Love Bali so you can enjoy those Julia Roberts/Liz Gilbert life shifts for yourself.

Eat Pray Love Bali is set on the tropical paradise of Bali, but the tour will also include Italian food, yoga and meditation in a nod to the novel’s other locales.

The tour’s lucky travelers will be completely pampered, staying in an eco-friendly four-star resort and spa in the center of Bali and enjoying some of the book’s major experiences, such as visits with Ketut Liyer, Gilbert’s Balinese shaman and mentor, a charming old medicine man who reads palms and says you will live to be 100.

But the trip is not just an homage to the Eat Pray Love locales. Guests will also visit the Ubud Monkey Forest, home to hundreds of friendly monkeys, an authentic Balinese village set in the rice paddies, and Taneh Lot and Besakih, two of the most important temples on Bali.

Of course, the trip will also include shopping and spa treatments, as Bali’s massages are almost as legendary as their handicrafts. Meals include a torchlit seafood dinner on the beach, and a three-course Italian welcome dinner.

“This will be the trip of a lifetime for many of our guests. Their every need will be met, and they will get to truly experience the joy that is Bali,” said Halle Eavelyn, the tour leader.

The trip jets off May 19th from LA or New York, but it closes before the end of March, so get signed up now at
